Hm, that's a "rights unclear" situation given doc V3489D367. If someone could help parse that in context, that would be much appreciated, thanks!

Meanwhile, what positive evidence do you have in support of your having marked the item definitely Public Domain here?

Public Domain
Festival Films offers the largest selection of public
domain feature films in the world. Quite a promise, but our
associates devoted lifetimes and fortunes to finding EVERY
FILM they can that is in the public domain. Films are said
to be in the public domain because they were never properly
copyrighted in the first place or were not renewed as
required by law.


The lists that follow contain mostly American films made
before 1964. These films are undisputedly in the public
domain in the USA. In most cases no underlying music or
literary rights have been claimed. If we know of any claims
we will inform you before proceeding. More information
about copyright and public domain is available on request.
